Black with a splash of Red at Make It Crafty

Morning Peeps,

Well did you watch the Royal Wedding? I love a wedding, especially a Royal one. Just Beautiful.

Right, onto today's card and  at Make It Colourful today we'd like to see you colouring Black with a splash of red. I have used Make It Crafty's Cordelia Mermaid, which Zoe sent me a while ago and I have only just got to ink her up.

I coloured up her fin with using the C Copic tones and then wanted to give it some definition so I placed some mesh over the fin and airbrushed some red over it to give the criss cross effect.

And here's a close up of her surfing those waves.
